ARAMARK has announced the creation of a new ARAMARK Building Community (ABC) Opportunity Zone in Charlotte, NC, in partnership with The Salvation Army Center of Hope. This unique program will offer comprehensive health and wellness education to help families within the community acquire skills and become better equipped to lead healthier lives.

ARAMARK Building Community (ABC) is a global volunteer and philanthropic program from the company that supports local community centers such as The Salvation Army, and helps the underprivileged within the country and outside. The Center of Hope not only provides emergency shelter for women and children throughout the year, but also offers a range of support services for families in need.

Volunteers from ARAMARK plan to make effective utilization of a currently under-used outdoor area at the center by transforming it into a hub for community nutrition education and fitness. They will develop a community garden that will encourage residents to grow fruits and vegetables, and will also build an adjacent outdoor classroom.
